Very Good

Well written and interesting, with quick pacing and unique, well-developed characters. Interesting twist on Sherlock Holmes with a Steampunk bent.

Don't bother

As a fan of Gail Carriager's Parasol Protectorate series I was hoping this could be just as good. Unfotunately, I was disappointed. The character and world devlopment are poor at best.

    The plotting was solid enough, but the writing felt very choppy, and for
    some reason was hard to follow. Also, the heroine was just too cold
    emotionally and was too over the top as a magical "superhero"
    to be believable. Still the steam punk elements of quirky machines were
    intriguingly combined with dragons and gryphons, even though with so
    many different elements at times it felt like the author was throwing in
    everything but the kitchen sink. If this is the start a series I enjoyed
    it enough to give the second one a try.

    Interesting

    I felt the story was well written. The characters fairly well fleshed out and the pacing fine. Considering the complications of the plot she kept if from overwhelming the narrative.

    I read a fair number of "romances" but read them for the plot, not the romance. I liked this book because any "romance" aspect was virtually nil.

    The relative lowness of my score is due to two factors. One; I had a great deal of trouble "believing" in her world that mixed Steampunk and magic in Victorian England. I'm not against either or both together but her mix didn't sit well with me. Two, she hit a pet peeve of mine with alternate reality England fiction. Were the hell are the Americans.

    Other than that a great read

    Ok read..but not getting into the series

    Storyline was ok but much of the terminology was hard to follow. Forced myself to finish.
